Riding High

Less than a week now til Sale-a-bration.  Here's something from one of the sets that will be available.


Can you imagine getting on one of these things?  Or falling off?

I used the layout from retrosketches #46.  I flipped it so I could use this image.





I'm going back to the Paper Players challenge with this card.  I hope they don't mind my coming by twice?  I love these colors that Anne Marie chose!



I think I'll send this one to my Dad.  He always loved antiques.  And I sure miss him.

This image is so easy.  All I did was stamp it and use the blender pen with a bit of Basic Gray ink to ground the bicycle.


The stamp comes from one of the Sale-a-bration sets, Feeling Sentimental.  It will be free with a $50.00 Stampin' Up! purchase from January 22 - March 22.  There's 2 other stamps in this set too and several other stamp sets and accessories to choose from.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Feeling Sentimental, Sanded Background (retired), Three Little Words (retired)
Ink:  Basic Gray, Pacific Point
Paper:  Whisper White, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight
Other:  Small Oval Punch (retired), Blender Pen

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Enjoy!

I love all of the antique accents on this card -- the sanded panels and the sentiment with the sponged edges. Great use of the colors and a great card all around. Thanks for joining us at the Paper Players again!

Great card for your Dad, Bonnie! I cannot imagine either getting on or falling off one of these things. Or even how it came to be in the first place. I think I might need to come up with a history, whadya think? Thanks for the idea ...!
